Cyber Safe For Life

A new partnership will see Coomera Anglican College take the lead in cyber safety, breaking new ground with a holistic approach to online awareness and wellbeing.

Kicking off the year with a bang, Coomera Anglican College has cemented their place amongst Australia’s front-runners in cyber safety education through a new partnership with Family Zone, a tool that will keep students safe online both at home and at school.

As of February 6, Coomera Anglican College is one of the first schools on the Gold Coast to take a “whole of college” approach to online safety, making Family Zone available to all families from prep to year 12.

“Family Zone won’t just be available on College supplied devices as part of our eMind programme,” says Coomera Anglican College principal Dr Mark Sly. “It will also allow families to provide protection on devices at home, and personal devices when students are out and about.”

The Family Zone programme will put more power into the hands of the parents, allowing them to remove inappropriate content for safe searching, restrict social media and in-app purchasing and manage screen time. Coomera Anglican College will host a number of parent information sessions, both in person and via webinar to suit parents’ schedules.

“The safety of our students while navigating the rapidly advancing digital world is a top priority at the College,” says Mark. “The ability to keep students safe regardless of the device they are using or the source of internet they are connected to is one of the main differences that Family Zone offers.”
